Providing energy surveying, modelling and analysis

We help local authorities and housing associations to identify how best to improve the energy performance of their housing stock, in order to meet current standards and reduce fuel poverty and CO2 emissions.

Our expertise in energy modelling and analysis has also been used to support clients’ own research and policy making. For example, we carried out modelling for the Scottish Government’s Peer Review of the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing and modelled Green Deal measures into traditional buildings for the Historic Scotland Technical Paper 17.

We undertake: 

  • Surveying, eg domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP)
  • Modelling retrofit scenarios in different buildings or archetypes to determine the impact of improvements on fuel bills, CO2 emissions and SAP scores, together with costs of measures and potential grant support
  • Analysis to provide strategic recommendations based on modelling, actual energy consumption data and other research.

We can also create detailed maps to illustrate areas of fuel poverty.

“It was useful to understand the real benefits of our solar PV panels and to make tenants aware they could realise greater savings.”
